I was like "what is this Tananarive that I've never heard of" so I looked it up on Wikipedia and it turns out it's the French name for Antananarivo. Can you please change it to the Jetpunk standard?

Similarly, Tel Aviv is normally enough on Jetpunk. I even tried Tel Aviv-Jaffa, but couldn't get this city.

It's a good idea, but these quizzes take a while! Maybe soon ;)
